Flume II

Heritage Museum and Gardens
Sandwich, MA  2014

I haven't been very good lately in capturing interesting reflections.  I posted a wide angle shot of this particular flume here and I'm sharing this close up view with this week's Weekend Reflections even though it was taken a couple of months ago.  I'm already missing summer.  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Fort Trumbull

New London, CT  2014

This is the third fortification to occupy this site overlooking the mouth of the Thames River.  The first fort was built in 1775 at the request of Connecticut Governor Jonathan Trumbull.  This fort was attacked and captured by British forces under the command of Benedict Arnold in 1781.  The current structure was built between the years of 1839-1851 and is one of a series of 42 forts built during this time to defend the coast of the United States.  Today it is state park and offers wonderful views of the Thames River and Long Island Sound.

Morning Coffee

Portland, ME 2014

A morning ritual for many of us, although not everyone enjoys their morning coffee at Starbucks.  Every now and then I'll indulge, but most of the time I brew my own morning coffee.

White Dress

She seemed a little out of place dressed like this amongst all the shoppers in Freeport.

Bubbles

Freeport, ME 2014

Bubbles are hard to photograph.  They also are interesting in black and white.
